County and City

Since our last issue the family of Joseph McDonald has lost another child by diphtheria, Herman, aged 3 years. The rest of the sick children were doing well at last account. The infant child of Thomas McDonald also has the disease. Also 3 children of W. S. McDonald are down with it. We have not learned whether their condition is considered specially dangerous or not.
